Party Earth The Stumble Inn Review

The Scene

With its neon signs and looming black-and-blue awning, The Stumble Inn is easy to find – and with its fantastic drink deals, friendly bartenders, and daily beer pong matches, it's kind of hard to leave.

With its neon signs and looming black-and-blue awning, The Stumble Inn is easy to find – and with its fantastic drink deals, friendly bartenders, and daily beer pong matches, it’s kind of hard to leave.

A wide selection of bottles and drafts awaits the crowd of young professionals and local students who gather at the long wooden bar to decompress over a few pints, while hungrier patrons lounge in one of the austere wooden booths to indulge in the bar’s famous stuffed burgers and deep-fried Twinkies.

Exposed brick, rustic tables, and stained glass accents add to the homey pub vibe, though the rambunctious sports fans who show up on game nights to bellow for their favorite teams are definitely more interested in the flat-screen TVs behind the bar.

On weekends, the state-of-the-art beer pong tables naturally draw more students and recent Upper East Side post-grads ready to get rowdy over drinking games, or just sit back with a pitcher or two of Stella to flirt into the wee hours.

The Havana Room in back – complete with mosaic cocktail tables, wooden leaf fans, and a disco ball – is mostly used for birthday and bachelorette parties, but opens to the public for major happenings like the Super Bowl and New Year’s Eve parties.

An unpretentious vibe, fun-loving clientele, and endless drink specials ensure that patrons at this boisterous sports bar will more likely be stumbling out than inn.

The After College Party
Nicole N. Apr 16, 2013
The Stumble Inn was my very first NYC bar experience, introduced to me by a friend I went to college with. It was appropriate for her to bring me because it was not unlike some of the bars in our college town. Cheap drinks, loud music, and even beer pong. It is actually a really fun venue, if that is the scene you're looking for. It's basically the ideal bar for grown-up Frat boys. Extremely casual, I saw one too many pairs of cargo pants. We got there around 7, and it was moderately crowded, by the time we left at midnight we could barely squeeze out the door. Overall, a fun experience, especially if you want to relieve the College Glory Days.
Stumble Inn for a fun time!
Luke S. Feb 19, 2013
The Stumble Inn offers affordable drinks, a younger crowd, and a flirtatious atmosphere that will definitely get your blood flowing. This place is most fun on weekend nights when everyone storms the bar and really let’s loose. Unlike some pretentious bars in the area, The Stumble Inn is great for a relaxing, fun time with friends. The bar offers beer pong, plenty of sitting areas, and even room for dancing if you’re getting a little sauced! The only real negative is the fact that this place can get really crowded, sometimes to the point where just walking around is tough. If you don’t mind a packed house then The Stumble Inn is an awesome time!
Young crowd, too crowded
Katie G. Dec 9, 2012
We literally "stumbled" upon this bar as we were walking around trying to find a place to go. It was fun because the crowd was young so the music was great, but you needed a lot of patience because no one would give up a spot by the bar!

Not the biggest fan. I gave them one star because the bartenders were amazing when I took shelter here with half the Upper East Side during the hurricane. Other than that night though, it's always crowded with frat boys and not the kind that work on Wall Street. Drinks are cheap, which I guess is the draw here along with two ping pong tables in the back. Good luck trying to play though. With the crowd that thick, not only can you never find the balls if you lose them, but any team not near the back wall is going to suffer when they try and hit a cup. Also, what's with the awkward set-up? I get the tables in the front for food service, but the booths and then tables that crowd adequate standing place in the middle? Eh. Only go if you're dragged or it's the only place open for the night.
Pong for the maladjusted

This is a very good bar for going-on-30 businessmen who think their still a bro. For everyone else, it's loud, overcrowded and overpriced. If it's a burger and a beer you want, you're better off hitting J.G. Melon on 74th.
Always Crowded, but Worth Checking Out Anyway
Sara G. Sep 14, 2012
I am not a fan of crowds. However, I will suffer through them for a meal at The Stumble Inn. Just be prepared to nap afterwards. One of my closest friends used to live a few blocks from The Stumble Inn, and I'd frequently come here with her. There aren't many spots like it on the UES. Fun history, reasonable prices, cold beers, and damn good burgers. There is ALWAYS a crowd of total prepsters -but if salmon khakis are your thing, all the more reason to come here and make yourself comfortable. I've never made it here for a beer pong match - but from what I know of the crowd, it's definitely a good time to be had. If you find yourself craving a burger on the Upper East Side, make your way to The Stumble Inn. You won't be disappointed.
